Widely regarded as one of the world's most fascinating scuba diving destinations with hundreds of unique diving sites for enthusiastic scuba divers to explore. There are so many dive sites that even divers who live here full-time never get to see all the underwater marvels of the Maldives.
From Male, a same day flight to Khoodhoo, the furthest South you can go, puts you on board your live-aboard for a week. Sun-rises and sun-sets are just breath-taking, and so is the diving! Big currents bring in the big animals, and the shark encounters are extreme! Expect to see Hammerhead, lemon, leopard, white and black tipped sharks and in big numbers too!
In the Maldives dives site with “kandu” in the name are channel dives. That means clear water and diving on the ocean edge with grey reef sharks, tuna, jack fish and sometimes dolphins and sail fish. In deep south some sites host a large population of green turtles especially Kooddo Kandu and Vilingili Kandu; while others have great coral gardens such as Kureddoo Kandu and Kondei Kandu.
Outside of the island of Genemanafushi there is a high probability of Hammerheads Sharks, diving in the blue along the oceanic reef. Further South of Huvadhoo, is the ultimate Maldivian dive destination, Fommulah. This atoll is only one island in the middle of the Indian Ocean but thanks to the oceanic current, there is a great chance to encounter tiger sharks and thresher sharks. It’s not uncommon to see oceanic mantas or whale sharks. On many nights powerful lights are used behind the boats to attract plankton and whale sharks.
